From the Dana College website:
1848 Kristian Anker, American Danish Lutheran leader, was born in Odense, Denmark (d. 16 November 1928). He came to the United States in 1881, the same year in which he was ordained. He served as pastor in Chicago, Illinois; Elk Horn, Iowa; and Blair and Lincoln, Nebraska. He broke with the Danish Lutheran Church in 1894 and helped organize the Danish Evangelical Lutheran Church in North America. He served as president of Dana College and Trinity Seminary from 1899 to 1905. Known as Blair College and Theological Seminary originally, it was referred to as Blair College and Trinity Seminary in 1900-1901, designated as Trinity Seminary and Blair College from 1901 to 1903 and was officially named Dana College and Trinity Seminary in 1903.
